Workshop on Community-Driven Development Approach in Agriculture and Rural Development
By: Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute (ARMTI)
Kwara State, Nigeria
Sep 23 - 27 Sep, 2013
Paradigm shift in Agricultural and Rural Development emphasizes community-driven development approach which gives control of decisions and resources to community groups. This enhances sustainability of development projects especially those with external support. Available evidence shows that there exists limited capacity among the rural communities and development workers to rise up to the challenges of taking charge of their development agenda. One potent way of addressing the issues involved is by exposing organizers, facilitators and executive committee members of community-based associations and groups to the basic principles of community-driven development (CDD) and concepts of participatory development.
Venue: Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria
